And me not having networked or kept enough contacts going :-(...

Someone was telling me the jobless rate is calculated by looking at the
number of people collecting unemployment.... so the government is no
longer counting me unemployed.... wow... didn't know I was employed...
who should I sue for not giving me a paycheck ?

If I could make enough money in a mundane job at this point, I'd go do
that and wait for this market sector to come back to it's friggin'
senses.... this is f'ing lunacy...
